We are still getting orders for the Matt Ford 2020 B-O-B Transit Service with the latest 2/28/20 edition going out with the updated 3/02/20 MSRP pricing sheets for the Cargo, CrewVan, and Passenger vans. With things going on with the plant closed and a lot of things still in doubt, we have decide to make a change on the service.

For anyone who has ordered the service and made a preview order with a order number, we will give you a chance to get the LIMITED FIRST EDITION of the Matt Ford 2021 B-O-B Transit Service once it is available at no extra charge. We have NO information on the 2021 model at this time and not even a date for the last date you can order a 2020 model. So once we announce the availability of the 2021 B-O-B Transit Service, you will just need to send us your preview order number and we will send you the 2021 Ford Transit Order Guide and the Ford Transit Order sheet. With the LIMITED Edition, you will not get the MSRP pricing sheets with it. To get the complete Matt Ford 2021 B-O-B Transit Service, you will have to pay the fee that goes along with the complete service program to get the mailed version that will include the MSRP pricing sheets.

More information will be available once we know about what is happening with the 2020 Transit production as well as released information for the 2021 model. Expect a increase in the base pricing for the 2021 model as well as some updated option offerings that have been mentioned and are in the process of being tested now on the 2021 prototype vehicles.

If you are interested in getting on the current 2020 version of the Matt Ford B-O-B Transit Service, you can go to the Matt Ford website, www.mattford.com then look at the 'Ford Transit Information' site and then click on the link 'B-O-B Transit Service' that tells you all about the service and how to get on it.

We have had a lot of Transit prospective buyers take the opportunity and get the Matt Ford 2020 B-O-B Transit Service booklet so they can work on seeing about what is available for the 2020 Transit and then decide if they want to place their order NOW or just wait it out for a 2021 model. As has been noted from information delivered by the Ford Transit Marketing Group, the 2021 Ford Transit Order Guide will not be available until at least October 2020 and the first expected Transit deliveries expected in late January 2021.

The offer is still available if you get on the Matt Ford 2020 B-O-B Transit Service NOW with being able to get the initial edition of the 2021 Ford Transit Order Guide once it is available from Ford. You will be able to think about the 2020 model and if you want to wait it out, you have the chance for getting the next model information.

With the Transit assembly plant going back to work today, there has been a lot of interest in getting back on board for ordering a 2020 Transit. This might be the best time to order one before Ford starts looking at raising prices to cover all of the extra expenses from the virus situation. The Matt Ford 2020 B-O-B Transit Service has the updated Ford Transit Order Guide as well as the updated pricing from March. After March 1 input orders, the price on the Destination & Delivery Charge went from $1495 to $1695 and this may be another area where the price may increase.

I wonder about that D&D charge. Is it the same amount regardless of where the receiving dealership is located? Is the charge the same for moving a van from the plant to Matt Ford as is is to ship one to a dealership on one of the coasts?

The Destination & Delivery charge is the same for ALL dealers regardless of where the dealer is located to the assembly plant. Ford uses the average cost to ship all of the vehicles and then that is what they come up with for a price that is the same for ALL Transits. The price has changed from a initial $995 back in 2015 to the current price. That has to do with the extra expense to ship a MR or HR Transit in a single height rail car and the delivery to the dealership by flatbed truck or trailer. It gives each dealer the same pricing so no dealer has a advantage over others by being closer to the vehicle assembly plant.

If you see a window sticker that was printed before March 1, 2020 it will have the $1495 price on it. Transits built after that time will have the $1695 price. When you placed your order and the price was the lower amount, even though the window sticker is printed after March 1 with the higher price, your original pricing with the lower price is locked in your deal.

That sounds like people who order a van with Matt Ford are subsidizing delivery charges for buyers on the coasts. Unless of course, we could order through you and get the van delivered to where we live. Otherwise the D&D charge seems unfair for buyers closer to the production facility. Making the math easier for Ford offers no benefit to me as a buyer.

We had a large group of orders for the Matt Ford 2020 B-O-B Transit Service last week which indicates there is still a lot of interest in ordering a 2020 Transit. Ford is pushing to get all of the customer orders built first and hopefully they will continue to do this with the new orders coming through the order system.

In the last 2 weeks, we have had 7 orders submitted for scheduling so hope to see movement on those order pretty soon.
